    It came out I think a week ago or so.

    There's no jb for it yet and I'm not sure there's been any news on that yet as well

    Yeah it's weird, I haven't heard of anyone saying that they are even working on a jailbreak for iOS 4.2.7. Does anyone have an email for any of the jail breakers to ask them if they have this in their plans? I was trying to contact Comex, but I don't have any of his info.

    you used to be able to put your iphone into recovery and downgrade to 4.2.6 via itunes but I believe apple stopping signing this a few days ago. Stinks, because I really want to go back to 4.2.6.

    I was on 4.2.6 late last week and tried to do a restore the way I have been doing it in the past, but all of a sudden it wouldnt work anymore because apple stopping signing 4.2.6. I am hoping there is an untethered jailbreak for 4.2.7 real soon.

    GreenpoisOn please assist here.

    I believe there is a tethered jailbreak version of 4.2.7 by redsnow. Has anyone tried this yet. Are there specific instructions on how to do this because I have jailbroken my iphone previously with 4.2.6 with greenposion's untethered version and it was very easy. I have never done the tethered version before.

    It can be done tethered with redsn0w, there's a tutorial somewhere around here.

    When your device reboots or shuts off with a tethered jb, you have to hook it up to your comp and run redsn0w's boot tethered on it to get it back on. Otherwise it is just stuck and can't boot.

    I am brand new to my iPhone. Currently updated from an LG Dare just to give an idea of how far behind I am in terms of technology. I have heard that there is much more that can be done with the iPhone besides what is offered by the App Store. Hoping that when the 4.2.7 jailbreak is out I can maybe get some help from you guys with that as well as messing around with some of the possible features of Cydia, and whatever else I can do with this phone.

    Thanks

    I downloaded the Redsnow program but am unable to find my firmware. Where do i go from here?

    UPDATE:
    I was able to jailbreak it. It is a teathered jailbreak, nonetheless it does work and I am successfully running cydia. Any apps I should look into?

    got a question. Do I need to run redsnow and boot from tether each time that I want to reboot my phone. If I dont do this the phone wont boot up, correct? Am just asking because yesterday I downloaded an app on cydia and afterwards it notifyed me that I needed to reboot, when I clicked reboot it went to a black screen and then never left the screen with the apple logo.

    I have not tried turning my phone off again, but I would assume so. If you have already jailbroke it, and don't like how it is tethered I think your only option would be to restore the phone... this is coming from a complete noob though.

    Well youre not really losing your jb you're just getting stuck and unable to boot until you run boot tethered.

    But yeah, no news on untethered.
